Some of the finest Mzansi musicians have collaborated on a song about hope amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rapper K.O, J'Something of Mi Casa fame, award-winning vocalist Msaki and Qwabe Twins (better known as Q-Twins) of Idols SA fame have joined forces to release the track titled Rainbow.
The aim of the tune is to lift the citizens' spirits and build a sense of solidarity amongst them as the country battles the coronavirus outbreak.
It is already a top 15 song in the country on the Radiomonitor SA Top 100 Chart and has already started playing on radio stations across the country.
The musicians have also shared what they think about the song.
"We hope the song inspires hope during a time when many might be concerned about their mental health and well-being."
"I'm a firm believer that music has an important role to play in society, especially at times like these. So when it came to being a part of this project, not only did I really believe in the initiative, but I was really excited at the prospect of working with K.O, Msaki and the Q-Twins."
"One thing I’ve learnt about South Africans is that fact that we are so resilient – and I say that with some trepidation as we are sometimes forced to be resilient when we don’t have to be. I am in awe of how we are rallying together and helping each other."
"In tough times, it’s wonderful to be able to use our talents to uplift ourselves and others. We are a nation of singers. Now, as we go through this lockdown together, we can encourage one another through a language we all understand – music."
With the purpose of igniting hope amid these uncertain times, SA's "song of hope" was brought together by Capitec Bank who have pledged to donate all its proceeds to the Solidarity Fund.
